I weighed myself today and I have lost. YAY! Finally. I'm now 82kg even.
I text my mum and boyfriend to tell them and my mum said that she is putting on weight and not happy about it. I told her that when she comes to see me next weekend I'll help her look at what she can do to loose weight. One of those things is going to be Sparkpeople. Currently she has very limited internet access, but when she moves in October she will have better internet, so she will be able to use Sparkpeople.
The problem with addressing this type of thing with my mum is that she is very sensitive. VERY. So tact, which is not my strong point, will be needed. I think I know (based on my last visit with her) what she needs to change to loose weight so hopefully I will be able to help her or at the very least get her on here and then the Sparkies can help. I want my mum to be around for a long while yet, but at the rate she is going I'm scared that she only has another 10-15 years left. This is something she wants so hopefully she will embrace the help and start making lifestyle changes that will help her live a healthier life!
In other news I'm about to lace up Pearl and Mavis for week 2 of running. The sky is blue, the birds are singing, the ipod is fully charged so hopefully it will be a good run/walk. 2 minutes of running, 1 minute of walking, repeat five times. I can do this, I can do this, I can do this!
